I told Mr. Husband that I was doing a blog post
on the store that is in Avonlea Village.
Oh you are going to write about a tourist trap?
Well... let's just say we were both excited to
get some special food things there for our
friends and family... :)
There is also a store in downtown Charlottetown...
Yes, Anne is 'big business' there but if you think
about all the things published today
and in the last years for kids,
I would myself be mighty glad that
Lucy Maud Montgomery books are still well loved!
And that there are places that are trying
to preserve the past and promote it.
There is no century I guess that is what we want it to be,
at least from my perspective
as in with beauty, modesty, Christ-loving, peaceful
but should we not at least appreciate the beauty
that is still to be found and the times where it was
harder in many ways,
out houses, older equipment for laundry, dishes,
farming was a real man's job and not at all easy
(not that it is today but you know what I mean,
horse and buggy verses tractors etc).
I don't find these things (stores) to be a totally bad thing...
I love Matthew and his quiet love of Anne.
A red fizzy drink, much to some people's dismay ;)
I did not buy the hot chocolate,
knowing I would be in Ottawa shortly there after
and could get camino chocolate there...
and when I am not using that, Fry's cocoa...
Anne and Diana dolls :)
They had really great jams, chocolates and other food
all made in PEI, so it was a special treat that
we passed on to many :)
